A word from Swim BC on time standards
September 10, 2009
As far as we’ve been told, all time standards (both Swimming Canada and Swim BC) are staying as they were last year. Remember, though, that Swimming Canada has announced previously that they planned to implement pre-qualifying standards (an IM event and a longer freestyle event, roughly 5% slower than the actual QT) for younger swimmers (14&U, I think) for Age Group Champs.
Obviously, don’t quote me on the details here; I’m just putting it out there as a reminder. Details and confirmation should be forthcoming from Swimming Canada in the very near future.
